Some of our best product use ideas come directly from satisfied customers.  George C., from Kalamazoo, MI, sent us this photo of a “porcelain bamboo vase which was broken into a couple dozen pieces and put back together with super glue gel.”  George suggests using super glue “sparingly, it doesn’t take much to achieve a strong bond with household items.”  We agree!!

George also tells us he “used the gel to bond fabric to leather on shoes; repaired a CFL light bulb to its aluminum base with glass adhesive as well as multiple [other] glass items; and once repaired an engine fuel injector & oxygen sensor with super glue gel.”  Additionally, he connected an engine gasket to a water pump with Pro-Seal.  George added,  “One of the most delicate repairs was a glass figurine repaired and attached to its metal base.   I could think of a 1,001 repairs that can be made with the variety of super glue products available.”

Wow, we appreciate that feedback, George!   THANKS for sharing your story with us!  It made our day!   And now,  let’s give George the last word:  “One thing I always have on hand is Super Glue which has become a household fix all!  It hasn’t failed me yet.”  🙂

Check out this amazing glass table made using a 1987 Volvo 240 crankshaft!  Sean Corron, the designer and artist, stripped down the old car and saved some of the parts to use on repairs of his own Volvo; sold other parts; and decided to refabricate some of the parts that were no longer useful in cars, like this crankshaft, to create something brand new!!  We think this is awesome!!

Sean told us he decided to use The Original Super Glue Glass Adhesive because it would be the best adhesive for this job, “I was searching for the perfect adhesive to complete a project which required a strong bond between glass and metal. Silicone and other air-cure adhesives would dry much too slowly (if ever) and 2-part epoxy has let me down in the past when applied to a smooth surface like glass. Your UV cure glass adhesive was the perfect solution, and my table is holding up well.”

You can check out all of the details on how Sean created this table, and see more pictures, by going directly to his website The Artificer’s Repository.  Thanks for telling us your story, Sean!  We are impressed with your ingenuity and super proud that our product helped you accomplish your creative goal!

Glassy Girl’s Weekend Party Favors ..

Nowadays, we are always hearing about fun, getaway weekends busy moms are taking to relax and rejuvenate with friends while hardworking dads take a break and bond (two words we love! :)) with the kids at home.  Recently, Sheli and some of her favorite “mom” friends did just that – took off for a weekend together in Palm Desert.

Check out these amazing party favors, Sheli created for her friends, commemorating the weekend!  Using colorful rhinestones from Michael’s, The Original Super Glue(R) glass adhesive, and Riedel stemless wine glasses, Sheli was able to personalize the party favors while also ensuring that everyone could find their own glass all weekend long (hence less dishwashing … something all the moms were looking forward to avoiding).  On the backs of the glasses she etched the date and place.  She told us that Super Glue Corporation’s glass adhesive worked great for this project because she was able to continue to move the rhinestones into place until she chose the time to take them out into the sun to cure the glue.  With the chemistry of this product, a UV cure is the only way the glue will set allowing you to control when the glue will set the stones permanently in place!  The glue also dries crystal clear!

Super clever idea, Sheli!!  Thanks for letting us share it with our readers!!
